Have just started my Henderson engine. Have not run since -51. The sound was really snappy and chrisp. Imagine rolling a new Henderson out of the shop back in -27. You would for sure be the local hero when everyone else in town had to pedal on their bicycles to get anywhere about.
I am the second owner on this -39 W.
When i got the chance to buy this bike from the relatives of the previous owner it needed a full overhaul on any moving part whatsoever.
Changed every bushing, bearing, needle roller etc etc.
Even if the W is not a very powerfull bike this is the bike that gets most mileage.
Here is a -26 or -27 J 61" (1000cc) that is used to pull firewood back to the farm.
How many guys out there use their old scoot for this purpose now a days in deep snow, with skees and snow chains on both wheels.
Some of those images might have been shared by me in other forums like the AMCA site(Antique Motorcycle Club America) http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/
I have been a AMCA member for years, their magazine is a highlight each time its recieved.
This is a -28 J or JD (front brake but no dual headlamps as in -29), there is a odd home made mod. to allow the driver to operate clutch by hand. Must have been a guy that have been used with this set up on his older bike as this dissapeared in -25 on HD.
Installed dual-cam operated front brake.
As I really felt there where need for improving my bob job`s front brake I found the dual cam front brake kit now availiable from several sources to be a god alternative. I purchased this from W&W.
To stand out from the crowd I added a aluminium ring with cooling fins on the drum.
Had to run the drum in the lathe to get its external round, heated the ring to 200degree celsius before I installed it to the drum. It is fitted with 0,5mm negative fit.
Having been a regular surfer on other folks blogs, having seen umpteen cool photos from what is my no.1 interrest (have a guess) I found its time to make my own blog.
Will try to load some pics showing American Motorcycles in Norway, this beeng old photos or old bikes (in more recent photos).
I start up with my 45" bob job;
